RESTORATION RIDES MINISTRY 2016 ANNUAL REPORT

// January 31st, 2017 // No Comments » // Success Stories

Two grants totaling $5,000, a car donation valued at $4,500 and individual cash donations provided the funds to help us repair nine cars in 2016.  Fourteen children were included in the families served.

Our income last year was the highest we have received in the five years of our ministry.  For the first time we were able to sell the donated car and buy and repair two cars with the proceeds.  These cars were given to families to meet their transportation needs.  As always, the cars we repair give families the ability to provide medical and educational care to their children as well as participate in the job market.

We are grateful for the support we received to provide safe and reliable transportation to those in need.  For a complete report please contact George Johnson at 602-400-9995 or email george@restorationridesministry.org.
